A path of redemption and many obstacles that sustains itself in its good performances. [Full review in Spanish]

[Seems] after awhile to take on an allegorical quality, analogous to America's agonies in trying to erase our country's own disfiguring racist heritage. Let's hope we can someday come out as unblemished as Widner's face.

Skin is still a surprisingly entertaining look at the humanity behind one hater.

The film is slightly longer than it needs to be, but it offers an authentic, thought-provoking story about redemption and forgiveness.

Bell is magnetic in the role, and there's real chemistry between him and Macdonald, but the film's formal glossiness and frequent overhead shots create distance between the viewer and the hate crimes on display.

This film's saved by the Bell. But only just.

A good watch but too many pieces of the puzzle were missing for it to be great.

Jamie Bell gives a pulsating performance in Skin as an American neo-Nazi who renounces all notions of white supremacy, to the vengeful fury of his former associates.

[Jamie] Bell is frighteningly full-on in this role, using all of his physicality to convey Byron's inner rage. The way he interacts with other characters is unapologetically tactile, oozing charisma. And when he breaks, it's simply staggering.

Skin does a great job in advancing the discourse around the recent rise of the far-right beyond the newspaper headlines.

Skin is not a "nice" film to watch. But we watch it. And we keep watching it, in our heads, for a fair while after it ends.

Skin isn't always convincing - is the love of a good woman all a Nazi needs to change their ways? - but Bell certainly is.

Like Spike Lee in BlacKkKlansman, director Guy Nattiv understands that there's no point pussyfooting around the subject.

Nice job by Mr. Bell.

The excellent performance from Bell bolsters a film that is always interesting and, on occasion, compelling.

As the USA grapples with racism and the normalization of white supremacy, "Skin" digs deep into the neo-Nazi culture and how difficult it is to leave those communities. Gripping, stomach-turning, and compelling, "Skin" will stick with you.
